PERFORMANCE ART

This is Performance Art done by the students of 3rd E ESO in the Contemporary Art Museum of Móstoles (CA2M, Centro de Arte 2 de Mayo). We have been previously working in class a workshop with several exercises to get to understand the performance art. This is a term usually reserved to refer to a conceptual art which conveys a content-based meaning in a more drama-related sense, rather than being a simple performance for its own sake for entertainment purposes. Although it was not easy for them to understand, it was quite a good experience and it gave them the chance to work in another atmosphere, not limited by the walls of the High School. Their behaviour was also very different from the behaviour they normally have in class. I have to say I was not surprised, I knew they would be deeply involved with this activity. They did performances on the streets of Móstoles, and afterwards we had a meeting to discuss our feelings and thoughts about it. It was indeed, an excellent workshop!
